about us image


PARCA, Partners & Advocates for Remarkable Children & Adults, has been enriching the lives of people with developmental disabilities since 1952. Our programs are designed to create a feeling of extended family to help people live as independently as possible and enjoy all that life has to offer.

Our programs


Through PARCA's clothing donation program your donation of gently used clothing and small household items will go a long way toward helping PARCA continue to provide people with developmental disabilities the support and guidance they need to live full, active and independent lives.

“There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” - Albert Einstein

Devon is a friendly, cheerful young man who has lived independently in his own apartment since 2002. As part of PARCA’s Community Living Options (CLO) program, Devon receives Independent Living Skills (ILS) services from an experienced PARCA ILS counselor who guides and supports him toward ...reaching his goals and fostering his independence.

Devon keeps his apartment clean and takes great care of his four pets. A few years ago, he took initiative and independently found a job at Lucky’s grocery store where he is a model employee. For all his great progress and achievements over the past few years, Devon was presented last spring, with a PARCA Client Achievement Award.

Through the generosity of donors like you, PARCA is able to provide support to remarkable people like Devon, enabling them to grow, thrive and live as independently as possible. Please give as generously as you can. We appreciate your ongoing support.
